Bit help! Applemouth or Elliptical Snaffle?
Hey guys, I need some advice. I've been wanting to change my horses bit, she's currently in a plain loose-ring snaffle but I hear that the bits with three pieces are softer on the mouth due to the abscence of the nutcracker effect.
So I've been looking into getting a new bit and there are two that I came across that I liked.
One if the Elliptical Snaffle (which, if the name doesnt sound familiar, is a loose-ring version of the French Snaffle as far as I can tell) and the other is a three piece Apple Mouth.
What I would like, if you guys can help, is a bit of information, personal experience on the bits. The Apple Mouth is a quite a bit more expensive than the Elliptical (about twice the price) so I want to know if its really worth the extra money!
